Sophomore School Counseling News!
Dear Guardians of the Class of 2022,
Welcome back! I am not going to lie, I am sad summer is coming to an end but I am also very excited to see all the kids returning and start our second year together. I have already met with many of them regarding schedules last spring and these past two weeks. It is always hectic trying to get in and see a counselor to get a schedule that works for both the student and the school system. Thanks for your patience and understanding of the system limitations. It has been wonderful being with the same group of students and families this year and I am excited to continue this journey with all of you.
Sept. 11th is Open House from 6-7:30pm.
PSATs - Oct 16th at BSHS.
November 14th and 15th are Parent-Teacher Conferences

The cell phone policy in the counseling center will align with the overall school policy.

Counseling Staff will follow our school’s cell phone policy and confiscate your phone if you are in violation.

It is our mission at Big Sky to help every student with their academic, career, and personal/social needs. I am here to celebrate in successes and help with any problems that are preventing someone from being the best student they can be. Counseling services may include individual visits, group counseling, and classroom guidance lessons. There is never a foolish question or reason to come see me. It is my job to help you!
I look forward to an exciting school year!
